An Open Letter To The Creators Of Frozen

Dear Frozen,

My daughter can’t quit you and that’s a big problem for me. You see, ever since you came out, all she wants to do is dress up in princess attire, watch your movie, and talk about Elsa and Anna. My sister even bought her this Anna doll that is motion activated. It comes on whenever anyone is within 96 miles. Our cats set it off nightly and not even locking it inside a trunk is enough to keep it quiet. It’s like a less psychotic but somehow more annoying version of Chucky. On a completely related note, my sister and I are now estranged. READ MORE

    Breast Is Best… But What About The Rest?

    I’ve hated my boobs since 5th grade, when they made a most unwelcome appearance. Backyard football with the boys became awkward. So did locker room changes. As they became a focal point of my high school figure, I despised them even more. My back hurt when I ran. Forget horsing around in a bathing suit. Rude and humiliating jokes from teenage boys.

    Hated. Them. READ MORE

    What Not To Say To Unassuming Pregnant Women

    Listen. If you’re going to comment on a pregnant woman’s amplitude, at least think of something more creative than the standard ‘Are you sure you’re not having twins?!’ gag.

    First off, that ‘joke’ isn’t funny, but she’ll feel as though she has to laugh because she probably likes you. This burst of fake laughter could cause her to pee her pants. Her favourite pants…her only pants that still fit her. And she’ll hate you for it…for a long time…because you forced her to laugh at your banal one-liner. READ MORE

    Yes, I am a Stay at Home Mom.    Yes, All of my kids are in school now.

    And yes, I hate it when you ask me what I do with all of my “free time.”

    It’s been one month since my youngest started kindergarten. For one month I’ve been a stay at home Mom of school aged kids. And people are finally done asking me, “So, what are you going to do all day?” Thank god for that. Now that the school year is in full swing I’m finally getting used to my new routine. But, I know there are plenty of people out there who still question my SAHM existence. To those people, I feel like we need to get some things straight. READ MORE
